Thomasville--  Drug agents are keeping thousands of dollars of pot off the streets of Thomasville.

They have arrested Merle Thompson for dealing from his house. Agents say they found more than half a pound of marijuana inside. The bust is Thompson's second within a month.

In a separate incident, agents arrested Tony Wilcox for dealing pot. A search warrant yielded a significant amount they're still weighing.

Agents say that both busts were fairly small, but that they're far reaching. "Generally that's not used for personal use. That's used to distribute to would be buyers. So, anytime you take 10 to 12 ounces of marijuana off the streets, that's a substantial amount," says Thomasville / Thomas County Drug Squad commander, Kevin Lee.

Thompson and Wilcox have both been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. They could face up to 10 years in prison.
